Jurgen Klopp has the perfect name for Dominik Szoboszlai's new midfield role

Jurgen Klopp has the perfect name for Dominik Szoboszlai's new midfield role

Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp has given Dominik Szoboszlai a new role.

Jurgen Klopp has come up with the perfect name for Dominik Szoboszlai’s new midfield role.

On Sunday afternoon, Liverpool regained top spot in the Premier League after coming from a goal down to beat Brighton and Hove Albion 2-1 at Anfield.

Goals from Luis Diaz and Mohamed Salah were enough to cancel out Danny Welbeck’s brilliant opening goal.

As a result of Arsenal and Manchester City drawing 0-0 at the Etihad Stadium, Liverpool are now two points ahead of the Gunners and three clear of Pep Guardiola’s men.

For Liverpool’s winning goal, Hungarian midfielder Szoboszlai was involved as he played the ball to Alexis Mac Allister, who then expertly found Salah in the penalty area to slot home.

Speaking after the match, Reds boss Klopp labelled Szoboszlai his ‘chaos creator’.

He said: “Wataru and Macca [were] in the right spaces and Dom was the surprising act there, the chaser, the chaos creator.

“And that worked really well I thought. They had possession but not the possession they wanted and that helps.”

Klopp added: “Against the ball, we were really calm. [We] set the trigger in the right moment, really compact, incredible game from the boys.

“The centre, with Macca and Wataru, really good; Dom, like a fireball, jumping out there and creating the chaos. I liked that a lot.”


During the match, Szoboszlai received criticism from former Liverpool man Jamie Carragher, who was on commentary for Sky Sports’ coverage.

He said: “They could do with a little bit more from Szoboszlai, Liverpool. A blistering start to his Liverpool career then out with injuries.

“There’s real talent there but we’re getting to that stage of the season now where big performances are going to really matter.”

Liverpool will be back in Premier League action on Thursday night when they welcome relegation-threatened Sheffield United to Anfield.
